ikki5 commented on Nintendo Shows Off Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's...:

@GodOfPie yeah I guess... but if the camera in the full game is as horrible as horrible as it is in the demo... it is going to be VERY annoying. It was just over all frustrating for both my friend and I. I am assuming it is meant to be used with the circle pad pro which I don't have.... and will never have.

@BensonUii

What are you talking about? you guys get demos all the time, much easier than NA often times to where we get these stupid "randomly selected people from CN". Yes, you guys have the same thing happen there from time to time but it happens here more often than not.

This makes me give some respect to Best buy to limit one per customer. it is just a lot of people would pre-order these, put the minimal amount they need to hold on to it and then sell it for a fortune so they'd then have the money to pay the rest.

@JellySplat

Though it is unfortunate that this happened to you, just be happy you actually managed to get a hold on one. I tried ordering it on Amazon, Eb games, Walmart, etc. I probably made the mistake of going to my local EBgames and asking them first but apparently they were sold out in 15 minutes. by the time I got home, they are ALL sold out in my region making it so I'd never get one unless I was willing to pay more than double the price.

I am ever growing concerned for my Toon link Amiibo.... Amazon had an estimated time delivery for both my sheik and Toon link Amiibo but the Toon link Amibo has been switch to "will let you know when we have more info".... If i don't get that Amiibo, I am going to be so pissed.

@MartineG3

LOL, Good luck with that, if you don't Robin and Lucina them now, you'll never get them.... actually... it is probably already too late. Yes, places are already take pre-orders

Evolution AND restock of current need to be delt with.

Also, to those going on about Amiibo being DLC, you can think of it that way but the DLC you are buying is not just for that one game, instead it is for a wide array of games. Personally, I'd take that kind of "DLC" any day instead of spending $14 PER TITLE.

Anyone in North America could not say they saw this coming in the near future. The State of the NoA Club Nintendo was just getting beyond pathetic with each passing month getting ever so slightly worse with the exception of the decent month but even those were diminishing.

@River3636 Whats the point in buying it now then? 2-3 years? It will definitely come down in price by then and with no games except for one coming to it, there is no reason to upgrade until the price drops. The only other incentive to buy it would be the for the special editions for collectors. Another problem is other regions get the normal N3DS and it is a cheaper cost. There is only the XL here which is the more expensive one so really, there is no point to getting it now and it is better to just wait for the other one or wait for the price to drop.

@River3636

I brought that up because you said we should be happy and excited because of the list of games.... a list that consists of one game. overall, there really isn't much reason to go out and spend another $200 on another 3DS without more incentive to buy. If everything you currently want to play is coming out on the 3DS you already own, why would you need to upgrade or upgrade right now. Really, this is the best for people who don't own a 3DS as they would need to buy a system anyway to play all the games they want but then here, they got one choice and it is a choice that also doesn't come with an adapter meaning they'd have to spend a little more even if it is only a couple of dollars.

"Different territories make their own business decisions regarding individual products and timing. "

Yes NoA, we all learned by now you make more bad business choices compared to the other regions.

@River3636

There is only one game confirmed to be exclusive for the N3DS as of now so there really isn't many games to think about. All the other games announced with work with a regular 3DS. So really, right now it is just a 3DS with improved hardware and a single exclusive game.

ikki5 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

This is going to make a lot of people who are trying to sell their Metriod Prime Trilogy for a killing.... $10 for the first week and then $20.... lol I think EB games is still trying to sell that game new for like $80. They won't be happy of that announcement.

Also... what is with Europe getting Donkey Kong while NoA just doesn't care???

@Quorthon

Whilst it is true that DVDs and CDs all went to a unified platform, they also became the primary source for data pretty much, but the reason they were unified was because the competition actually died and to be honest, prices still rose from that if I remember correctly. They are down today because... well, there is more competition of people who develop those, develop the hardware to use those, and over all more options other than using discs now. That's the problem, yes it was unified for a short time but guess what... it isn't so much anymore because people find new ways. and now there would be competition for these disc based products through digital, cards/ cartridges and disc. Just because it was once unified, it does not mean it will stay that way because that is what we do. People find new products and then compete, prices are driven down. This is capitalism.

Over all, CDs/ DVDs are actually on their way out. The competition is beginning to kill them. this is why DVDs and CD are so cheap now because there is other stuff competing against them (plus the manufactures competing making these products). For example, you talk about how everything is unified with the CD and DVD industry when it is not. There are songs, TV shows, Movies which you can only get on digital platforms... yes, exclusive to another platform and not on CDs or DVDs. Sound familiar? That's because it is, it is exactly what you don't want gaming to be only with music and video.

So in the end... you are just wanting two companies to die and one to release everything. Yeah it will be unified.... for a short time but something will always come up, someone will always release something that is a competitor.

Also, I hate to break it to you, Nintendo is not in debt and they also posted a profit on the Wii U before Black Friday sales. They won't be dying any time soon.

@Quorthon
Lol... wow... that's quite the dream..... a very impossible dream especially in a capitalist society Which is the biggest flaw in your arguments, you are totally missing the point of how our society works.

You are wanting all three to now united, become friends and share a wealth between them in one unified system. The console which will still be VERY pricy if everything was on i and if it was the only one. You should take an economics course on why competition is good for the consumer. Also, not only will the consoles rise in price but the games will also as there is only one platform, they may not rise as much in ratio as the console due to competition in the genre but it will be there as there is only one place to get the games and one place to put them which would mean the developers would increase them and your "unified alliance" would also increase the fees for the companies to put the games on there too since there is only one place (other than PC of course... unless you wanted that unified too).

It is actually funny when you think about it because you keeping going on about how it would be better if Nintendo went Third party and I am assuming it is because you love their games but don't want to buy another consoles when really.... them being First party... it will probably be cheaper overall to just spend the extra $300 for the second consoles than increase prices on one main console and games. it doesn't matter if there are different price points for stronger hardware or not, over all it will be more expensive. Look at it this way. if Nintendo was the only company and the only console, would you still have a $300 consoles? Heck no! You'd probably see it more like $600-$700 or a decent grade Laptop.

Another thing you are forgetting about is if all three unified for one system... imaging the job losses in that. You'd lose probably several thousands of jobs because a lot of the maintenance and overall stuff would just become redundant and not needed.

Yes.. a unified console would reach a wider variety of people and people would only ever need one consoles for all their gaming delights... but, at what cost? Would you be willing to pay the much higher prices? even more so, would you want to see the massive job losses? All of the sudden, your perfect world isn't so perfect.

@markybbop
Do you understand what would happen if there is only one console? That console would cost probably 5 times more than what it is now and if all the games were on just one console, they would sky rocket too because there is nothing to compete against it to drive the sales down.

@JaxonH actually... all game on one console would be horrible.... that console would be so expensive because the competition for it would be gone and they'd charge an arm and a leg for games and consoles... XD
